    What is the purpose of making it hidden? If you are able to enable proper security, nobody can connect to it anyway.

    Perhaps if we know why you want to make it hidden, we can help with a solution.

    Wireless routers arent allowed in my apartment complex. For my main router, i removed ssid broadcast. But internet is hideous though that thing compared to the direct desktop method. Router speed tips would be helpful as well in that case. Thabks for the response!
